Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

"United capitalised on a mistake and from then on they played with a bit of intelligence. Although we had the majority of the play in the second half, they looked dangerous on the break.."

The top flight resumes on Wednesday evening with a full round of fixtures, including champions Celtic's first league match against St Johnstone in Perth and Partick Thistle's opening game of the season against Ross County in Glasgow.

It's been mainly away wins on the first weekend of the Premiership season with Inverness triumphing at Hamilton yesterday and Dundee United and St Johnstone both picking up three points on the road today.
